Edible Landscaping: Blending Beauty with Bounty (150-06-17-17)
Saturday, June 17, 9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Julie Weisenhorn, Horticulture Educator, University of Minnesota Extension
Do you enjoy growing food, but tire of hiding your humble vegetable garden in the back? There is another way: edible landscaping combines both ornamental and edible plants and results in a completely beautiful, completely delicious property! After an introduction to the concept, Julie will show you and your fellow gardeners how to make good plant choices for this type of garden, how to creatively mix and match for your desired garden look, and of course how to plan for sustainability and healthy long-lived plants. You will leave with a comprehensive handout and the confidence to create an edible landscape on your own property.
